Table 1 Lags of excess mortality after cold spells in individual population groups and characteristics of excess CVD mortality associated with cold spells.

From: Excess cardiovascular mortality associated with cold spells in the Czech Republic

Population group Lag with the largest mean relative excess CVD mortality
[days]
Relative mean excess CVD mortality with the lag after cold spells and 95% CI
[%]
Mean excess CVD mortality with the lag after cold spells and 95% CI
[number of deaths]
Mean expected CVD mortality
[number of deaths]
Percentage of cold spells with positive excess CVD mortality at the given lag
